What Constitutes Disorderly Conduct in Minnesota?

The laws of Minnesota consider disorderly conduct or disturbing the peace, any action that disturbs, annoys or upsets another party within reason. As such, the law can be extended to cover most any sort of action, as long as that action or behavior upsets someone else nearby.

Young man getting arrested in MinneapolisExamples of disorderly conduct include:

  • Acting intoxicated or impaired in public.
  • Fighting or brawling.
  • Interrupting a lawful gathering or protest.
  • Making a statement that will likely alarm others.
  • Playing music unreasonably loudly, usually after refusing to turn it down.
  • Shouting obscenities and offensive slurs.

To be convicted of disorderly conduct, the prosecution must show that you intentionally tried to upset another, or that your actions were so outrageous that they would upset most anyone. For your defense, it will be useful to consider the context that surrounds your charges. For example, shouting obscene lyrics at an energetic concert should be fine, but it might be seen as disorderly conduct if you do so while walking down your street.

To formulate a defense that can stand up to the prosecution, call (612) 444-5020 and talk to our Minneapolis disorderly conduct attorneys today during a free consultation.
